It is recommended that children should see a pediatric dentist before the age of one or within six months of their first tooth erupting. This is important because early dental visits can help ensure good oral health for children, prevent future dental problems, and creates a comfortable dental home for you and your child.
Here are some reasons why you should see a pediatric dentist before the age of one:
A pediatric dentist can detect any dental problems early on and provide treatment, which can help prevent more serious dental issues in the future.
A pediatric dentist can provide parents with guidance on proper oral care for their child, including tips on brushing and flossing, proper nutrition, and preventive measures.
Early dental visits can help prevent cavities by teaching parents how to properly clean their child's teeth and recommending treatments to strengthen tooth enamel or diet changes to avoid cavities.
A pediatric dentist can establish a warm and caring dental home for the child, where they can receive regular dental checkups and build a relationship with their dentist. This can help ease anxiety and ensure that the child receives consistent dental care throughout their childhood.
